Gathered together in this volume are over two hundred and fifty poems from Anthony Castro. Included are his first published poems from Manhattan Quarterly when he was an emerging poet, to his most recent songs. Throughout his eminent career, Castro has experimented with different forms and styles, even creating an innovative form in 89 blinks that recognizes the inherent duality of all things while drawing the reader into an intimacy with the poem's experience. Anthony Castro seeks to see reality and show the world as it is. "He celebrates the uniqueness of people and allows into his songs the sublime, the sad and the proximity of death-in life, along with a joy of language, a delight in humor and recognition of the holiness of love."

Collected Poems

Thought Lines Nothing I think is straight . Parallel lines too late bend to infinity
though never cross , I ' m told . Thoughts bend too , but equate to no other , new
nor old neither timid nor bold neither early nor late neither dross nor gold .

This book collects all the poems published by Andrew Taylor since his first book appeared in 1971, together with a substantial section of new work, and confirms him as one of Australia's most original and individual poets. The poems range through explorations of personal and family relationships, encounters with a wide variety of landscapes and cultures, and social and political issues. A strong sense of mortality is balanced by a delight in the details of the physical world, a fascination with everyday objects, and a belief in the regenerative power of love. Poems for children and aging or dying parents explore the hopes and possibilities of the future for the young, and the significance of a lived life for the old and those who survive them. This poetry is firmly located in the physical world, often in specific landscapes and places, ranging from the coastlines of southern and western Australia to numerous places in Europe and the USA where the poet has lived. Although many of the poems are short and meditative-lyrical, there are also several extended sequences, including one of book length written during the absence abroad of the poet's wife. Other sequences explore this relationship within a variety of geographical and historical contexts, and the importance of the beach, the coast and significance of living on an island-continent for the poet's youth and middle age. Both the physicality and the ephemerality of the physical world are given meaning and illumination by the lives lived within it, in a language that is lively and confident, yet also aware of how the richness of the world inevitably evades its grasp.

"This first comprehensive selection from seven decades of Dawson JacksonÆs poetryùlong poems, lyrics, meditations, satires, elegiesùreveals an original talent who followed his own strict rules in order to tell difficult truths. There is something of the mystic about Jackson: he loved the world of nature and the human form. In his writings, the very physicality of the world provides the necessary evidence of transcendence. Celebrating this world in verse, he devised a style uniquely his own."

Over thirty years of poems from an American poet in the spirit of Alan Dugan and Nelson Algren's Chicago: City on the Make. "At times . . . I wanted to be a poet." A fittingly sly and humble epigraph for this half- a- lifetime's worth of sly and humble, and also lyrical and joyous, poems. From the first poem in the collection, "The Woman in the Peter Pan Collar," in which the poet examines an old photograph of his mother, searching for clues, to the last, "Rainouts," in which he beseeches the Lord to let his own death take place on the sort of day that strands baseball games mid-inning, leaving "all final decisions happily deferred," Brooke Horvath is always intimate, never rhetorical or bland. This is poetry not just for the sake of poetry, but poetry as a way of life, of engaging with the world. Like the works of Alan Dugan or Galway Kinnell, these are poems of the everyday and, when read slantwise, of what lies beyond. The whole collection, in fact, is imbued with the wily double meaning of the final couplet from "What in the World Were We Thinking Of?"--"It was a day when nothing happened / that we will find worth remembering."
